Project: A Technology Platform for the Fast Machining of Freeform Surfaces using Circle Segment End Mills

Acronym FlexiMILL (Reference Number: 10874)
Duration 01/08/2017 - 31/07/2019
Project Topic The proposed project (FlexiMILL) aims to develop a turnkey ready technology platform to make novel and superior circle-segment-end-mills (also known as “barrel-tools”) usable in the milling of complex parts. By using circle-segment-end-mills the flexibility and productivity of industrial milling processes can be increased significantly (>400% productivity). The technology platform encompasses a threefold approach, combining the development of optimized tools, software and process knowledge.
